Dogs

Prune| A089

PruneFemale, Young, Medium


Prune was adopted from the refuge several years ago but now needs a new home due to a change in family circumstances. She is a lovely dog, used to children and other dogs, clean in the house and obedient. When her “welcome” photos were taken on her arrival, the leave was left on the floor, and she just sat calmly. Prune is a shepherd cross who was born in December 2012. Six years old, now, Prune is a calm and steady middle aged dog who will make a great companion for just about anyone.

Snappy| A085

Snappy male crossMale, Young, Medium


No, he doesn’t bite, so why “Snappy”? Well when Moira and I first went to meet him, he was so poor at taking treats that he kept missing them and clacking his teeth on empty air. Maybe being given treats is something new for him. What a handsome lad, though! A young Brittany spaniel who has just arrived, we will give you more information in due course.

Rusty| A086

Rusty male Fauve BretagneMale, Young, Medium


Although Moira and I have only met this boy briefly, I think we both know that he is going to be a DRC favourite. A medium sized fauve de Bretagne, Rusty is not at all scared of people, rather the reverse. Both Moira and I had our faces washed, in fact. At present Rusty is living inside, as he is painfully thin, but that is easily rectified. He is getting lots of love and care and we will make sure that continues after he leaves for his new life. As Rusty has only just arrived we don’t know his date of birth yet, but watch this space, or get in touch!

Ziggy | T629

Ziggy terrier crossMale, Young, Small


None of us can believe that Ziggy is back again! He was almost the last dog to be adopted in 2018, but is really having bad luck with his adopters, perhaps because some people want a small dog so badly that they have completely unrealistic expectations. Ziggy is a small dog, but he not a bichon or a poodle. He is a terrier cross, he is not going to sit on your lap being stroked all day (lovers of other small breeds, please do not be upset, I love them all, but some are more used to being on laps than others). Ziggy’s family tell us he is not good with other dogs, which we know to be nonsense, as he has always shared fine at the ScPA and is doing so again now. There is nothing wrong with this dog, just with the people who adopted him. Ziggy was born in mid November 2016.

Kyklos | A057

Kykloslabrador crossMale, Young, Medium


Kyklos is another DRC favourite. He is a russet-brown coloured lab cross who was born in April 2018, so he is yet another “not-quite-pup” who finds himself at the SCPA, and for the life of me I cannot understand why. He is exuberant, but no more than you would expect of a dog of this age. He is perfectly well socialised, and was happy to share his box as soon as he left the pound. He is at that lovely play-fighting stage with other dogs, but knows exactly when to stop, so he has what we call the “codes!. Kyklos is a really great lad. Let’s get him out very soon!

Cuba | A054

Cuba wire haired terrierMale, Young, Small


Oh, I just love this little lad. He is a curly haired fox terrier who is a bit unkempt right now, but who will look amazing once he has been to the groomer. Cuba was born in January 2013, but this is just the vet’s estimate, as he arrived unidentified. One thing is sure, though, he had a home until very recently. He is great on the lead, no pulling at all. If he stops for a sniff you can whistle or call his name and he moves on immediately. He is used to being handled and is great with other dogs. And he is fine with cats too. Cuba is a real gem, and if you want a steady companion dog, he could be your boy!

Cortex | A047

Cortex pyrenean mountain crossMale, Young, Large


Cortex is one of two big and handsome cross breeds who arrived at the refuge having been found straying in a nearby village. They were eight months old at the time, and we suspect that they just grew bigger than expected. However lots of people like big dogs, especially white fluffy ones! These dogs would love to find homes, and the sooner the better!

Minus | A046

minus pyrenean mountain crossMale, Young, Large


Minus arrived with his brother Cortex, both dogs having been found straying in a local village. They were born in April 2018, so it is probable that these pups just got too big and were dumped. They are great lads, both of them. Stunning cross breeds, probably Pyrenean mountain crosses, they are at their full height now, but with some more filling out to do. They have lots of learning to do, but are good natured and handsome dogs who will be great family members.

Black | A021

Black male labrador crossMale, Young, Large


Black was brought to the ScPA for rehoming due to the death of his owner. He is a big lad, and no one in the family was able or willing to take him in. This is incredibly sad for the dog, of course, as he has lost his master and with it his home. He is having to do his grieving from behind bars. Black is officially a labrador cross, but he looks like a big all black rottweiler. Extremely gentle, luckily, as he looks quite imposing at first. Black was born in May 2015, so is in the prime of life. We would love to find him a new home, he has been a loyal companion thus far and his arrival at the ScPA is just bad luck.

Marcus | A022

Marcus male beauceron crossMale, Mature, Large

I remember when Marcus was adopted way back in 2011. He had already spent quite some time at the refuge and everyone was delighted when he left. His new family, a young couple, were thrilled to have their first dog, and I bumped into them several times at the vets, they clearly doted on their dog. Everything went wrong when they had a baby, however. Not all dogs accept new arrivals with the same joy as the parents, and Marcus was given away to somebody else. His details were not changed on the database, however, so when Marcus arrived at the refuge as a stray in mid January, his original adopter came to sign papers officially asking the ScPA to rehome the dog that was still officially his. Marcus is now 12 years old, and will be incredibly lucky to find another home. He is a beauceron cross who is fine with other dogs, but clearly his new home needs to be free of young children. Poor, poor Marcus. As a senior dog his adoption fee is just €80, but I doubt that will help him much.
